Focus at the AICC (All India Congress Committee) meeting was on Priyanka Gandhi, who recently took over as AICC general secretary in-charge of Congress’ party’s affairs in Uttar Pradesh (East), she headed straight for the meeting as soon as she arrived at the party headquarters.
Recent AICC meeting was aimed at creating Congress strategy in the upcoming Lok sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi headed the meeting and discussed party’s strategy ahead of the polls at booth level organization.
This was the first time that Priyanka attended this meeting. She was seated right next to Jyotirditya Scindhia who is son of Late Congrees leader Madhav Rao Scindhia.
Priyanka has been given the cabin which is right next to Rahul’s cabin at the party headquarters.
Priyanka resembles her grandmother Indira Gandhi and a lot is expected from her in future by the Congress. Priyanka is not a seasoned politician but since she belongs to the Gandhi-Nehru dynasty, a lot is expected from her. Congress expects her to make a huge contribution towards creating a strong ground for party.
Her rallies and public appearances are well-attended. Though her husband Robert Vadra is being summoned by the ED on account of alleged corruption charges; there have been no such charges against her.
She has also been compared to her brother Rahul Gandhi. Though Rahul Gandhi has been in active politics for many years now, Priyanka stayed away for a very long time.
Not much of her is known to people, as she has not made many public appearances and has also been away from the media. Priyanka, Sonia, Mayawati and Mamata are the female politicians who are expected to play a major role for their respective parties in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Only time will tell what impact does Priyanka make in deciding the future of Congress in years to come. Her role is not going to be limited to the upcoming elections alone, she is be expected to take up more leadership roles in Congress in the next few years.
